Spending Time with Teacher: Characteristics of Preschoolers Who Frequently Elicit versus Initiate Interactions with Teachers.
Coplan, Robert J.; Prakash, Kavita
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v18 n1 p143-58 2003
Explored interface between preschoolers' socio-emotional characteristics and interactions with teachers during free play. Found that children who most frequently initiated teacher interaction behaved more aggressively than peers and were so rated by teachers. Children who most frequently received teacher initiations were more shy and anxious. Children who spent less time with teachers were more sociable, less solitary, and showed fewer behavior problems than peers who experienced more teacher interaction. (Author/KB)
